Walvis Bay is unlike your typical picture of Africa. You’ll need to step into the richness and diversity that is life in Namibia. You’ll experience everything from touristy coastal towns with beautiful blue water to some of the highest dunes in the world, a scenic blend of red sand and vastness. But in a country where Christianity is the official religion, you’ll quickly realize many people struggle to develop a faith that is genuine and personal.
Whether you’re volunteering in an urban setting or in a remote desert school, you’ll invest in children and youth who are eager to learn and get your hands dirty on the farm. Each day will look different, but come prepared to embrace the real challenges of long-term mission work and community development. If you're looking for an Africa mission trip for college students during summer break, this is the one!
